I had a great shopping experience in Jaipur thanks to Janu. He provided amazing service and expertise throughout the whole day of shopping. Janu went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and had a great time. He listened to what we were after and took us to the right places for our needs. He has great connections all over Jaipur and knows the best places for textiles, pottery, jewelry, souvenirs and much more. Neither Janu or the shops he took us to pushed us to purchase anything. The prices and quality of the products were really good, as well as the service we received in the shops. They even offer to ship to your home if wanted. After previous experience shopping in India by ourselves, we were relieved to not have to deal with any bargaining or hustle and bustle. I highly recommend this tour for the best shopping experience in Jaipur!

100% recomendado! Definitivamente vale la pena pagarlo e irte por el paquete de 5 estrellas… Muy buenos guías, pero sobre todo el chofer (Rajesh) un tipazo! Todo limpio.. el detalle de llevarte a donde necesites, tenerte el agua, explicarte en la vía muchas cosas! Los hoteles, fantásticos! El carro asignado, súper cómodo y digno! Cómo dicen acá para todo: LUXURIOUS
